Foundation Moment with Gene James: This week we unofficially welcome summer. Remember back in the middle of April when we thought warm weather would never come? Well, for many years no one thought we would see the end of polio either, but the end is in sight. As of the middle of April, there have been 7 cases reported for 2018 in Afghanistan, one reported in Pakistan for the year and now new cases reported in Nigeria. The last case reported in Nigeria was in 2016. Rotary and its partners have vowed to vaccinate Every Last Child until polio is eradicated.

Marcy’s Quote of the Week: “The most important work you will ever do will be within the walls of your home!”
